The original (done by me) kit is still in 


I am (first day) on my holiday and i'll do for sure new kit this week anyway.
I have been playing around that new alpha-patch for 2.0.30 and i found it 
very unstable in my AXPpci, so i'm not putting anythign quite new in the
kernel of the installation kit. I have modules working, but recompiling
with latest binutils doesn't remove those annoying messages <0,x,x,y,z> in
console anyway. Now would be perfect time to tell, what features are 
wanted to monolithic installation kernel?

With the current kit the installtion is fine (expect the reboot in the end,
which works fine with CTRL-ALT-DEL). If you just 'dselect' after base install,
you'll end up (still) to pretty weird system, which can easily fixed by
removing libc6 and reinstalling some newer poackages over libc6 related ones.

I'll 'announce' after i have something ready again.
